      Wish RL ants could be dealt with as easily as they can in EDF. Then again, if I did deal with them the EDF way I'd also have no house too.

        Or Spiders... Or Hornets... :D EDF does have a lot of nightmare fuel enemies. The spiders in particular get to me.

        Yep. Hope no one on the EDF is allergic to bee sting. Not sure there's enough medicine to treat being stung by that!

        If EDF 5 goes on sale, I'd recommend picking that up, if you want the duplicates to "level up" the weapon. Early on in the game, you can get the starter weapon to be fairly powerful for even a Level 0 weapon. I got it nearly maxed out and it was more powerful than a default Level 4 weapon I had. It allows you to "gain power" despite the level restrictions in multiplayer :D It's pretty cool.

        See, I just thought there was a way to level up the weapon. Not always with duplicates, but with other drops. But still glad to know how it works. BTW, what are the medals? Is that just showing what levels I've completed at what difficulty?

        The medals show what difficulty you completed the level on, with which class. The game actually wants you to beat the game with all four classes... on all five difficulties. Not sure if it matters all that much to do so unless you just want all the unlocks and achievements. But, it's a good way to let you know what you need and give you some goals.

        I prefer cold over hot, mainly because I find it easier to battle cold (to a certain degree) than hot.. Like I can put more clothes to fight cold but when its hot, sometimes even if I dont wear anything its still hot.

        I mean, maybe that's a good thing, because the only excitement you can really get from an exam is a student having a breakdown, which, trust me, isn't desirable on either end.

        I suspected it would hurt indie developers. But I guess that means we'd have to release our game shortly after June or December in order to maximize our exposure without a sale, right? (about the sale being optional, I remember RPGMakerMV not going deeply discounted for six months or so, so I'm guessing it's either manually or you have to contact Valve)

        @Marsigne : Right. That's what I hope to do. So by that reasoning August or February is probably the right time to release on Steam, as too soon after the sale everyone is broke too.
